Two capsules supply 280 mg of ALA, 159 mg of EPA, 105 mg of DHA, 112 mg of GLA and 204 mg of oleic acid. The fatty acids are derived from a unique blend of fish, flaxseed and borage oil. Use with inflammation, endocrine dysfunction, free radical problems, lipid/glycemic problems and highly refined diets.
The great thing about this product is that it utilizes the latest research on essential fatty acids, namely, the fact that science recognizes that there are 2 subsets of these essential lipids. There are “parent” essential fatty acids (parent EFAs like parent omega-3 & parent omega-6) and “derivative” essential fatty acids (derivative EFAs like ALA or alpha-linolenic acid or EPA & DHA from flaxseed or fish oils). Many supplement companies use only the derivative EFAs as if they know how much our bodies actually need and then, they usually provide too much. This can and does present problems of essential fatty acid imbalances.
Some clinicians are seeing more and more omega-3 overdose and toxicities. This is because some doctors and researchers are ignoring high quality omega-6 fats in the diet while pushing everybody to massive overdose quantities of omega-3. The optimal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 in our diets is roughly 3 to 1. The problem is that we are consuming too much poor quality sources of omega-6. OPTIMAL EFAs helps to remedy this problem.
Biotics’ OPTIMAL EFAs contain both sets of parent & derivative EFAs in optimal ratios. This product supplies some derivative EFAs we know the body needs but also includes parent EFAs so your body can convert to more derivative EFAs IF that is what your body needs.
